'70s hit-maker Boz Scaggs, will be performing "Lowdown", "Lido Shuffle", "What Can I Say" and many more great songs at Chinook Winds Casino Resort on Friday, April 24, and Saturday, April 25. Both shows are at 8 p.m. and tickets range from $40 to $55 and are on sale now.
After first finding acclaim as a member of the Steve Miller Band, singer/songwriter Boz Scaggs went on to enjoy considerable solo success in the 1970s. Born William Royce Scaggs in Ohio on June 8, 1944, he was raised in Oklahoma and Texas, and while attending prep school in Dallas met guitarist Steve Miller. Scaggs joined Miller's group the Marksmen as a vocalist in 1959, and the pair later attended the University of Wisconsin together, where they played in blues bands like the Ardells and the Fabulous Knight Trains. Singing at Australian coffeehouses, their soft, mellow tunes were competing with the norm of 'hard rock' and 'glam rock', which were popular at that time.
Scaggs remained a critics' darling over the course of LPs like 1972's My Time and 1974's Slow Dancer. He did not achieve a commercial breakthrough until 1976's Silk Degrees, which reached number two on the album charts while spawning the top three single "Lowdown," as well as the smash "Lido Shuffle." In 1977, Down Two Then Left was also a success, and in 1980, Middle Man reached the top ten on the strength of the singles "Breakdown Dead Ahead" and "Jo Jo."
Scaggs spent much of the 1980s in retirement, owning and operating the San Francisco nightclub Slim's and limiting his performances primarily to the club's annual black-tie New Year's Eve concerts. He resurfaced in 1988, and has produced a collection of jazz albums and exciting new material.
